' saddddd' by A•L•€•X 🫀
This warbly and somewhat otherworldly lament has recently taken off—but the stabbing and unsheathing dagger sounds you hear in it are just as important as the music itself. It's used in a new trend about the statements that make us feel like we've been stabbed in the heart—and we think we've all been there.

'Spongebob Tomfoolery – Dante9k Remix ' by David Snell
This now-iconic sound was first made famous on Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants, and it's actually fascinating how ridiculously versatile it is. With the bouncing piano sound, backed by whimsical string instruments, it's the perfect representation of all kinds of silliness, from pet videos to pranks to actual videos of SpongeBob himself, and we'll never tire of hearing it.
@georgie_renee Wasn't disappointed 😂 #catsoftiktok #foryou #foryourpage #fyp ♬ Spongebob Tomfoolery – Dante9k Remix – David Snell
'follow my ig saltyroast' by dev
This cool, sleek sound combines electronic buzzing and a hip-hop beat, but the real reason it's taken off recently is that it's the signature sound for a new trend in which you quickly cut between two faces to show off just how similar they are.

'Sneaky Snitch' by Kevin MacLeod
Funnily enough, it seems this "Sneaky Snitch" sound by Kevin MacLeod began its life as generic stock music, but it's really taken off as a sound for prank vids, creeping pets and any videos of people being otherwise stealthy.
@topperguild He thought I was the mannequin 😂 @holygxd74 ♬ Sneaky Snitch – Kevin MacLeod
'Blade Runner 2049' by Synthwave Goose
If you're looking for a TikTok sound that feels like it was ripped straight from the future, look no further than this synthy "Blade Runner 2049" track. It's usually used for revealing conspiracy theories or secrets you might not have known, as well as for highlighting incredible new tech.
@mattgresia Guess the secret is out now 🤷🏻♂️🤑🤐 #TikTokPartner #LearnOnTikTok #Target #Money #Trending ♬ Blade Runner 2049 – Synthwave Goose

'Funeral Music' by Bobby Cole
You might be wondering why in the world a stock sound for funerals would be one of TikTok's biggest songs ever. It all becomes clear when you realize how many POV videos take place at people's funerals. It may sound dark, but the results can be super funny.
'Funny Song' by Cavendish Music
If you're on TikTok in any capacity, you've definitely heard the "doopin' doopin' doo" of "Funny Song" by Cavendish Music. It's cute, cheerful and just the thing to accompany all kinds of videos, whether you're showing off a cut pet or baby, or getting up to some kinds of shenanigans yourself.
@bestboybrodie Spa day! 💅🏼🐶💙 #fyp #cutedogs #bathtime ♬ Funny Song – Cavendish Music
'Monkeys Spinning Monkeys' by Kevin MacLeod & Kevin The Monkey
Here's another Kevin MacLeod stock sound that's taken TikTok by storm. There's no doubt that if you've been on the platform at all, you've heard this playfully charming and circus-like woodwind track, which is perfect for both animal videos and human shenanigans.
@ripleythemonkey If you haven't met the little guy here he is 🐵 #fyp #foryou #monkey #comedy #pet #cute #funny ♬ Monkeys Spinning Monkeys – Kevin MacLeod & Kevin The Monkey
'Love You So' by The King Khan and BBQ Show
"Love You So" by The King Khan and BBQ Show technically isn't wordless, as the full song has lyrics kick in, but chances are that you've never heard them if you've only heard the sound on TikTok. This isn't just one of biggest "wordless" TikTok song at the moment, but one of the biggest song on all of TikTok, so it definitely deserves a space on this list. With its rousing drum beat and jangly '50s guitar sound (even if it actually came out in 2005), it's another versatile, upbeat track that can be used for pretty much any type of video you desire.
